Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart
Into the Magic Shop: A Neurosurgeon’s Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart
The honor winning New York Times blockbuster about the unprecedented things that can happen when we saddle the force of both the mind and the heart
Experiencing childhood in the high abandon of California, Jim Doty was poor, with a heavy drinker father and a mother constantly discouraged and deadened by a stroke. Today he is the chief of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (CCARE) at Stanford University, of which the Dalai Lama is an establishing promoter. Yet, in those days his life was at a deadlock until at twelve he meandered into an enchantment shop searching for a plastic thumb. Rather he met Ruth, a lady who showed him a progression of activities to facilitate his own particular enduring and show his most prominent wishes. Her last order was that he keep his heart open and instruct these systems to others. She gave him his first look at the exceptional relationship between the mind and the heart.
